The base of the Folk Music Ensemble DA MUSICA is formed by Baerbel Ehlert (violin and alto violin) and Filip Kees (guitars, mandoline, balalaika, banjo). This Duo can be expanded to a Quartet by adding Roger Moreno (accordion) and Jan Hallema (double bass).
DA MUSICA is specialized in international Folk music, like Jewish, French, Irish, Oriental and Latin.
But in their repertoire you also will find Tangos, Vienna waltzes and French Valse musettes.
DA MUSICA was founded in 2000, but all members of the group have a big experience as professional musicians since decennias.
Since 2010 they even act as accompaniment musicians of the famous singer Jimmy Kelly (former Kelly Family) on his tours (for example the Streetkid-Tour 2016).
